I’ll do small recaps of the Bonhams and Mecum auctions once I get back home, but I just have to share something that happened today at the Bonhams auction – the ’51 Black Lightning owned by Jack Ehret for 47 years just sold for a world record amount. Go ahead, take a guess…

Ready? Including the buyer’s premium, this Vincent sold for $929,000.

Bonhams shared a brief moment of the bidding, which was between a British bidder in the audience and an Australian bidder on the telephone – the Australian would end up winning:

Damn.
